officials and come up with new rules for future debates. their demands ranging from requiring opening and closing statements to the temperature in the room. now it's the rnc's turn to respond. rare and revealing interview. brad pitt and angelina jolie sitting down together to talk about sharing the screen, their family, and her difficult health decisions. >> it's just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter. she was doing it for her kids and she was doing it for her family so we could be together, which was -- trumped everything. trumped everything and anything. and crowning achievement. >> inside corner! the royals 2015 world champions! >> kansas city pulls off another stunning comeback to win the world series, a title through the decades in the making, giving fans a reason to say "all
7:01 am
november 2nd, 2015. >> announcer: from nbc news this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a morning morning, and a sad morning in new york. a joyous morning out in kansas city. and for everybody who watched the world series, a tired morning bus it because on late. and what a comeback for the royals. >> can't blow leads in the ninth inning. much more on the came coming up in a little while as we congratulate the royals, but let's start with our top story on this monday morning. what caused the plane to break up over egypt's sinai peninsula killing all 224 people on board. well, a top official is out with some headline-making claims this morning. nbc global correspondent bill neely is in cairo. bill, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, matt. we know now that there was no
7:02 am
that the plane broke up in midair. a lot of theories, but beyond that, very few facts. the kremlin says terrorism cannot be ruled out and the airline says a mechanical impact was the cause. what does that mean? it's a mystery above all for all the relatives for all those on board. coming home on a plane into their home city, the bodies of 144 people who left russia for vacation in egypt. this is where they died, but why is still a mystery. the debris so scattered investigators say the plane broke up in midair. the tail found three miles from the cockpit amid the poignant reminders of the lives lost. they are searching for clues and ruling out nothing. >> one of the things that you can't rule out at this time is whether or not there was an explosive device of some sort on the aircraft. >> reporter: a group affiliated with isis said they downed the plane, but their claim has been dismissed by russian and egyptian officials.
7:03 am
fault could have caused the crash. only a mechanical impact on the plane could have caused the breakup. but the jet had an accident once before. its tail damaged landing in cairo 14 years ago. it passed inspection six months ago in ireland. the airline says the incident didn't affect the plane's safety. in st. petersburg a second day of mourning. they know russian charter airlines have a poor safety record, but they know, too, their country is bombing syria and they have been the victims of terrorism before. so for now all eyes are on the black box flight recorders recovered from the scene. they're still being skpanled in cairo. the voices and data on those most likely to unlock this mystery. and although terrorism isn't being ruled out, officials here in cairo and in russia say the most likely cause is a technical or mechanical failure that caused that catastrophic
7:04 am
break-up. meanwhile here in cairo, the bodies of more of the victims are being returned to their families in russia today. matt, savannah? >> bill neely in cairo on this story. bill, thank you very much. now to the race for the white house. an upheaval within the republican party. side-stepping the rnc, the campaigns came together for a closed-door meeting and agreed on a list of demands for future debates. we'll talk about the impact of an already wild race in a moment, but first to nbc's peter alexander for the details. peter, good morning. >> that list of demands will be sent to the tv networks hosting the upcoming tv debates by the end of the day tomorrow. to be very clear, an unprecedented meeting with the campaigns grabbing back the reins pushing the republican national committee aside even as the rnc tried to end any revolt, announcing its own new point for debate negotiations. it may be one thing all 14 republican presidential campaigns can agree on.
7:05 am
they're frustrated with the current debate system and going forward want more control. >> these debates are to highlight the differences in philosophy between the candidates. >> i know that harry truman couldn't get elected president with explaining united states of america's health care plan in 30 seconds. >> reporter: after last week's widely criticized cnbc debate, the rnc suspended next february's nbc news telemundo debate. following a nearly three-hour closed door meeting late sunday without the rnc in attendance, both compromise and disagreement. sources attending the meeting tell nbc news the bush campaign wanted the spanish language telemundo debate reinstated, but a representative for donald trump threatened to boycott this. a draft letter obtained by nbc news shows some of the
7:06 am
campaign's demands. both opening and closing statements. equal time or equal questions to each candidate. another requirement, candidates may not be asked to raise their hands to answer a question. and while the debate may be heated, the room has to be kept cool, below 67 degrees. top republican lawyer ben ginsberg. >> i mean what happened happened, and so you often have to make course corrections, and now it's time to make a course correction. >> meanwhile after last week's uninspired debate performance, jeb bush is vowing to step up his game. >> look, i know i've got to get better doing debate, and i -- i may -- i'm a grinder. i mean when i see that i'm not doing something well, then i reset, and i get better, but for. >> but for now he's sticking to his guns, again attacking protell jage turned rival marco rubio for his poor senate
7:07 am
you should show up and vote. >> reporter: rubio again refusing to take the bait. >> i have tremendous admiration, i said that at the debate. >> right. >> you're never going to hear me bad mouth him. >> there's real urgency here. the next debate is now just eight days away. the trump and carson campaigns, of course, may have the most leverage. together they combine for a majority of republican support as trump's rep told the room, according to sources inside, we don't want anyone on stage because all they do is take potshots and throw punches at mr. trump, and i don't need that. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. let's bring in nicolle wallace, msnbc analyst and former white house communications director for george w. bush. good morning. >> getting fun. >> i know. just fascinating the dynamics here, so the candidates versus what's really going on. a vote of no confidence in the rnc. >> this is a wish to return to the way it used to be. the campaigns used to have a greater say and certainly in the general election and you guys know this. in the general election both campaigns, the republican and the democrat negotiate through their debate commission directly with the networks so this is -- this is a smart move by the campaigns to try to have more say, but the notion you could get a front-runner campaign like donald trump and an underdog campaign like bobby jindal to want and need the same things out of the debates is where they are going to go astray.
7:08 am
i kind of expected to wake up this morning to some stunning demands. >> right. >> game-changing demands. >> right. >> thermostats. >> these are tweaks. >> yeah. >> but here's the thing. we're sort of talking around the edges of it. at the core is a massive generational distrust with the mainstream media and it bubbled over in the debate last week, and ted cruz on the stump in iowa this weekend talked about a litmus test that i've never heard before in my life. he said no one should moderate a gop debate who doesn't plan to vote in a gop primary. >> or hasn't. >> i don't know how they would ever enforce that and to me where republicans need to be careful is these debates are serving a lot of the candidates very well, and in my life i've never seen more republicans on the airwaves of mainstream media outlets from town halls and late night and daytime and taking great advantage. >> isn't the bottom line blaming the media a longtime winning
7:09 am
strategy? >> it is because you can always find an example where it's legitimate and where they have to be careful is not to overplay this hand because they are the party behind them. >> chris christie says, on the other hand, if you can't handle a couple of tough questions or even what seemed like biased questions, how are you going to take on a general election against someone like hillary clinton? >> that's right. and, you know, hillary clinton's folks are saying we don't get any favors from the media either. so i think the frustration goes both ways, but the republicans are hoping to bring it back to some more even footing. >> nicolle, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> by the way, speaking of politics lester holt will have an exclusive interview with the president on "nbc nightly news" and more of that interview tomorrow on "today." we have some more information on that u.s. cargo ship this sank east of the bahamas during hurricane joaquin. the ntsb says the ship appears to have landed upright on the ocean floor. images captured by sonar appear to show the "el faro" in about 15,000 feet of water. remote-controlled subs will now dive almost three miles down to confirm those findings. 33 crew members died after that disabled ship vanished on october 1st.
7:10 am
and now to that dramatic finish of the world series overnight. kansas city royals captured the team's first title in 30 years, and willie is here with all the highlights. wow. >> good morning, guys. they did it again. new york mets' starting pitcher matt harvey shut down the royals for eight innings, and as he walked to the mound to finish the game in the ninth, it looked as though the series would head back to kansas city for game six, but then as they've done time and again in these playoffs, the royals rallied. another night, another comeback. >> unbelievable base running by eric hosmer has tied it! >> kansas city tying the game with two runs in the top of the ninth inning. >> the royals have fought back the entire postseason. >> then three innings later the royals rallying once again. >> colon delivers into left! >> to take the world series title.
7:11 am
the royals, 2015 world champions! >> for fans in kansas city it was a world series win 30 years in the making. >> i kept saying to everybody around me, don't count them out. don't count them out. it's exciting. it's more exciting this time, i think -- >> let's go, royals! >> -- because all the young fans get a chance to see a win after all these years. >> while back in new york mets fans were stunned. >> i'm a little disappointed. >> it's tough to be a mets fan today. >> kansas city came back in all four of its world series wins, including after game one on tuesday, briefly went dark twice because of technical difficulties. >> we have lost -- we have lost our picture. hi. we're having some technical difficulties. >> the royals went on to tie that game in the bottom of the ninth inning, eventually winning in the 14th. >> the royals win game one! >> last night they went 12 innings, setting up mets fans for another heartbreaker. >> there's always next year. >> world champions. >> while in kansas city the
7:12 am
royals are the kings of baseball. we are the champions >> that party is probably still going on. there's a parade now scheduled for tomorrow in kansas city for the world series champions. new york city talk radio, sports is always exciting. this morning it's going to be a little more so because of the decision that mets manager terry collins made to send harvey out for the night. harvey asked for the ball and collins gave it to him, and that will be talked about a lot today. >> between that and the giants' football game. >> they will be going on. >> a lot to talk about. >> oh, my gosh. >> willie, thank you. in other news this morning, an e. coli outbreak has closed dozens of chipotle restaurants on the west coast. so far at least 22 people have become sick, but health officials are expecting that number to grow while they investigate. >> the chain has closed 44 stores as a result. officials believe the source is likely a fresh food product that was shipped to the stores. >> all right.

8:12 am
that's what's going on around >> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> all right, al. thank you so much. it's been a little more than a year now since sue of the biggest superstars in hollywood brad pitt and angelina jolie got married. >> nbc's tom brokaw recently caught up with them. tom, good morning, good to see you. >> good morning, good to be back. we got together with the newlyweds of the iconic sun setter to hotel in los angeles not too far from their home. i talked to them about their new marriage, how they have rewritten the celebrity guide book on managing fame and life's obstacles especially for angelina have brought them closer together. despite their worldwide superstardom, they sometimes seem just like another married couple. mr. and mrs. jones or smith. so now you're a married couple.
8:13 am
you know, seas certified, and angie told me shortly after you got married she thought maybe she should be a more conventional wife and mother and thought about cooking. >> he looks at me because like every three months i'll say, hone, i think i should learn how to cook, don't i? >> yeah. >> and -- >> yeah. i just humor it but she has no business in the kitchen. >> their domestic life aside, turns out the way this celebrity couple celebrated their nuptials was by going back to work together on the screen for the first time in ten years, a film produced by our sister company, universal pictures "by the sea." >> what's cooking, good looking. >> reporter: in which angelina not only stars, she's the writer, director and producer. this is a much different film than request mr. and mrs. mrs. smith." >> the a little bit. >> we were joking at one point, this is like the beginning and this is like ten years later.
8:14 am
this is what ten years of marriage will do to you. >> the do it. >> stop! stop! >> reporter: i don't want to give away too much about the film "by the sea" by i think a lot of fans and other movie-goers will be a little surprised by some things. here you have one of the most secure marriages in hollywood and this is about the two of you in a deeply troubled marriage. was this a big risk on your part? >> well, i think, one, i'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all we could never make this film. it's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues. >> blowing you a kiss. >> i'm blowing you one back. >> reporter: "by the sea" which seems more like a european art film than a traditional hollywood blockbuster is a deeply personal project. it was inspired by her own bereavement and grief after dealing with her mother's eight-year battle with cancer. >> i can't say what the whole familiar is about, but a lot of the film is when i went to visit
8:15 am
my mom in the hospital when she found out she had -- she had cancer the first time. had to have her ovaries removed and very upset and feeling like this was taking out her parts that were female and there was a woman down the hall who was wailing, and i later found out it was a young woman who had not had children yet and that put everything into perspective. >> reporter: angelina's mother, the actress, was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1989 at 49 and died in 2007, this following the deaths of angelina's grandmother and maternal aunt also because of cancer. a few years ago a blood test revealed that angelina carried a mutation of the brca-1 gene giving her an 87% risk of breast cancer, a 50% risk of ovarian cancer, so in 2013 she had both
8:16 am
breasts removed and underwent reconstructive surgery emerging as a beacon of hope for women when she told the world. >> well, i feel wonderful, and i'm very, very grateful for all the support. meant a lot to me. >> reporter: have you been stunned by the reaction to this, and are there parts of it that are worrisome to you? >> you never know what a reaction is. you have to just make the choices you make in life had. i made the choices i made because i believe they were right for me. >> reporter: then in march of this year while she was editing "by the sea" her doctor called with news that another blood test showed she could have signs of early ovarian cancer. she called brad right away. >> i was out in france and angie called me, and i got straight on a plane to return. seeing my wife have to be her strongest and knowing that it's the scarest estiest of news is terribly moving and not being there is a horrible feeling. >> reporter: together they faced
8:17 am
she did not have a full-blown tumor, she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. throughout the ordeal, her mother was never far from her thoughts. >> we had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors so the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother's doctor. my mother had said to her promise me you will take angie's ovaries out and so we kind of got together -- both had a big cry and she said i promised your mother and i've got to do this. >> reporter: less than two weeks after her procedure she wrote an op-ed piece for the "new york times" to make other women aware of what they might expect if they face the same issues. in and leona's case, despite hormonal replacement therapy, her ovarian surgery brought on an early onset of menopause. >> every woman is different when they go through menopause and every woman -- i didn't know how
8:18 am
the breasts would be physically changing and the ovaries is more your emotions change and your hormones changing but it's different. you feel different. >> reporter: for brad angelina's surgeries and medical challenges these past few years have been inspirational. but she had to make big decisions did double mastectomy and then about having her ovaries removed. how did you see your role in all of that? >> support, whatever's got to be done to keep the family together and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done. no question it's a scary decision and there's many things that can go wrong and many different directions, but it was really led by her dedication this is what i've got to the do and this is what i'm going to do. >> reporter: did you have an appreciation of the emotional part of it? >> i just remember there was no vanity to my wife's approach. it was mature. it was an excitement to where this is our life and we're going to make about it. there was a strength in, that just another one of those things in life that makes you tighter.
8:19 am
she was doing it for her kids and doing it for her family so she had -- so we could be together which was -- which trumped everything. trumped everything and anything. >> i think for as much as he speaks about my strength, i knew that he made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart and capable and cared about her family, that it wasn't about -- not about your physical body so i knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where i was going to feel less of a woman because my husband wasn't going to let that happen. >> reporter: and in the long run angelina now thinks that her experiences might help others. >> many of us will have cancer. people all die and so to -- to face these issues together and speak about them and talk about what it is to be human i think can be a beautiful thing. >> as you know, hollywood is not
8:20 am
is i'm very taken with these two because of their honesty. they didn't try to in some way to engage me in a way that would improve on their careers. i think her message is very important to women all over the world quite honestly, and they were going from here, by the way, pack to his hometown of springfield, missouri where he has a compound on a lake, spend the week with his aunts and uncles and other people and retreat to their very private lives except when they have something important to say, so hats off to the two of them. >> hollywood might not be your thing but people your strong suit and it was a great interview. >> i do admire their honesty, and what she does is going to be critically important downstream to young women coming of age and not being afraid to make the decisions that are very hard. >> and showing how to make them with such grace as well. tom, thank you very much. we should mention, by the way, their move "by the sea" from our sister company universal will be in theaters on november 13th. coming up we'll change gears and get ready for the upcoming holiday season.

9:03 am
tanzeum is not insulin. it is not used to treat type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis, and has not been studied with mealtime insulin. do not take tanzeum if you or your family have a history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you're allergic to tanzeum or any of its ingredients. stop using tanzeum and call your doctor right away if you experience symptoms of a serious allergic reaction which may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer which include a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. before using tanzeum, talk to your doctor about your medical conditions, all medicines you're taking, if you're nursing, pregnant, or may become pregnant. and about low blood sugar and how to manage it. taking tanzeum with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects with tanzeum include diarrhea, nausea, injection site reactions,
9:04 am
cough, back pain, and cold or flu symptoms. some serious side effects can lead to dehydration which may cause kidney failure. ask your doctor if adding once-a-week tanzeum is right for you. go to to learn if you may be eligible to receive tanzeum free for 12 months. make every week a tanzeum week. guest: pc does what!?
